Sharon J. Gomez, 73, passed from this Earth on April 9, 2013, at Eastern New Mexico Medical Center after a brief illness.
Graveside services for Sharon will be Thursday, April 11, 2013, at 10 a.m. at South Park Cemetery with Vista Care Chaplain Cecil Kimberlin officiating. Sharon was a beloved wife, daughter, and mo[auth] ther who will be dearly missed. Sharon met and married the love of her life, Daniel in 1961, and they were married for 51 years. She retired from Mountain Bell and pursued a business opportunity that became very successful. Sharon had a great business mind but managed to keep her priorities in order as well. Sharon was also an excellent cook. Bad health had kept Sharon from doing what she liked to do recently, but she never let it get her down.
She is survived by her husband Daniel; her son, Billy Smith, of Los Alamos; her daughter Vicky Hammett and son-in-law Michael Hammett of Odessa, Texas.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Alfred and Ruth Faye Mermis.
The family would like to thank Dr. Mandodi, Dr. Chechani, Dr. Feroze, and all the fantastic nurses in the Critical Care Unit at ENMMC. The family also request that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the American Heart Association.

Services are under the direction of Anderson-Bethany Funeral Home and Crematory.
